Her second midterm was thought to be hard. But actually it was not. The only reason people think the exam is hard is the material is harder. Emma is a fair marker as well as a charming prof. Her office hour is unbelievably helpful.. It is easy to do well on 103, just follow her, do the sample questions before the exams, drop her office.

"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough"

Hutchinson is immature, makes unnecessary and offensive jokes while trying to make the course 'fun'. The lectures are confusing. She makes it known on the first day that she will never respond to our emails... why? Out of laziness, basically. Fails to post things on time, very disorganised. Would have dropped out if it wasn't mandatory. Stay away.

Emma makes her lectures pretty engaging! Not an easy course. If you put the effort in you'll do fine. Some advice go to OFFICE HOURS!!

Emma was usually pretty clear and funny. She definitely tried to make the course enjoyable and relevant to her students. Her tests were a bit difficult, but if you put in the effort you will do well.

"Respected by students" "Amazing lectures"

Emma is a great prof in the fact that she is clearly passionate about teaching, really fair concerning tests and marking, she explains all the material clearly with lots of examples and always invites students to come see her for help. She is a funny prof and I would recommend her class to anyone.

"Respected by students" "There for you" "Hilarious"

She's funny and tries to make the material as interesting as possible. She understands and 'gets' us students. She really does care about us even though it didnt seem like it at first. Sarcastic humour - ita great. Second midterm is tough, go over the slides and her very helpful review questions (and I got through the class without the textbook :p)

Overall, meh describes my experience in this class. If possible, take this course at Camosun. Can be confusing at times. Textbook is more helpful than the slides. The preamble for the final exam was helpful though.

Read the book and do the study guide questions. Dont go to lecture, it s a waste of time and only tends to confuse the easily read material.

Emma is an amazing prof!!!! Shes really funny and laid back and tries to (and does) make lecture interesting. If you ever are confused GO TO OFFICE HOURS!! she is soo helpful and really tries to help everyone (she had office hours everyday!) Go to lecture, pay attention, take notes beforehand, do ALL of the homework questions and you'll be golden!

Honestly, she was very mediocre. Her lectures were terribly boring, very confusing, and it's hard to keep track of where she is in explaining concepts. That being said, her midterms and final were fair. I probably would have done better had I not gone to lectures and just learnt the material on my own.

Pretty good prof, but she often confuses herself in lecture. Lectures not mandatory and often not needed. Posts slides online.

So Emma liked making funny racial comments and probably blasphemed a lot. But overlooking those things she did well in teaching the material. If you want to succeed read her slides, do study guide questions and practise midterm and final questions. It will be an easy A for you.

One of the most unprofessional and disrespectful professor I have seen out of the 40 courses I have taken at UVic. I seriously wonder, who let her address 600 students with that attitude. Her notes are full of errors and classes are boring. She makes r@cist comments, and makes fun of lower income groups. She has a short career with this attitude.

Emma is super chill. Let people do the make up exam because they had Kanye tickets. I swear there is no need at all to go to lecture. Stopped going completely after first semester, still kepy my A-. She posts everything; all the notes, readings, study questions, sample exams and bascially the exact breakdown of types of questions for the exams.

I found Emma to be a great prof. She was very clear on what would be tested on, and gave lots of practice question that accurately reflected the level tested on the midterms/final. Lectures can be boring, but she acknowledges that and goes makes most lectures interesting and funny. A good grade is very doable if you do the work.
